Comm w/ Nios II Windows XP & UART

Hi, 

 

Does anyone have any examples of comm code that can run on Nios II and a Windows XP machine? Code allows user to select file on Windows XP and load to designated memory in Nios II space. 

 

I am trying to update some RGB images on a custom Cyclone board. I only have a UART as a comm channel.

Either of the boot monitors u-boot or redboot will do this. With u-boot you can do a 'loadb 0x100000' on the target and then do a 'send file' in hyperterm to download a binary file. Once the file is downloaded you can burn it to flash. The individual steps can be automated.

Thanks for your input. 

 

I will look into u-boot.
